The Erasmus Mundus Joint Master in Applied Ecohydrology (MAEH) focuses on finding and implementing solutions that ensure the sustainability of the uses and good ecological status of water and aquatic ecosystems, by merging ecohydrology with water engineering and integrated water management.

The MAEH graduates will have the holistic perspective and technical knowledge needed for solving the complex and multifactorial problems of water security and aquatic ecosystems sustainability, now and in the future.

The Erasmus Mundus master program in Applied Ecohydrology merges the skills and expertise of four European Universities and cooperates closely with UNESCO experts, companies and institutions in water science.

The MAEH is scientifically supported by UNESCO Ecohydrology Programme of the Intergovernmental Hydrological Programme, that has been developing the concept of ecohydrology for more than 20 years.
